Default Sun Visor Vanity Lights Quit Working..What could it be??

We have a 2001 Accord sedan EX 4 cyl. Bought the car new. Noticed a couple of weeks ago that the lights in the vanity mirros no longer work when you open the covers. I have checked all fuses under the hood and on both the passenger side and driver side. They are all good. It's not a huge deal, but I'd just like to know what's wrong. Anyone have any ideas??

Not sure if the digital clock in the dash is illuminated or not but noticed it is not lit up at night so you can't even see it. Maybe that's normal but just thought it might have something to do with the vanity lights not working. Any help appeciated.

You have to have the parking lights on for the vanity mirror lights to work. Your clock bulb burned out.

LOL...Yep I figured that out after I posted this stupid question. Flipped the lights on and the vanity lights work fine. DUH!

So the digital clock in the center of the dash DOES have a light?? Anyone know how to replace the bulb??

Remove the clock, change bulb. On my 02, the clock comes right out, and I think it will be the same on yours. I was changing that bulb on an oddysey, and I had to take the dash apart to get to the clock.

Yea the accord clock just pops right out of the vents with a small flathead screwdriver. then use the same screwdriver to remove the small bulb from the clock. It's a cake walk.
good luck and glad you figured the first part out

This topic was addressed years ago but having just bought a '96 Honda Accord with vanity mirror lights that didn't go on I needed this answer. I have been everywhere trying to find replacement bulb/fuse things for the vanity mirror with no success. Auto parts stores had never seen such a thing and couldn't tell if it was a fuse or a bulb (looks just like a large fuse). They sent me to Radio Shack. They told me to look online. I came to try to find them online and stumbled upon this forum.

Well, I went out to the car, put the "bad" bulb things back in and turned on the headlights. Presto! The vanity mirror lights turned on. Thank you so much for resolving my problem...for free!

The clips are on the bottom. Use a large flathead screwdriver and gently pry up from the bottom (and only the bottom), the clock will pop out.
